Afzal et al. draw from the Children’s Environmental Health Network’s Blueprint to illustrate how leaders from different sectors of society can work together to provide healthy environments for children. Integration of political, economic, and social “homes of influence” is key to success.  When all sectors work together to solve problems, schools and child care centers will be safer, transportation will be cleaner, and hazardous exposures will be prevented.

From the EHP Editors

Firestone et al. celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the U.S. EPA’s Office of Children’s Health Protection by showing how the Agency’s innovative research and regulatory support programs have reduced and prevented childhood exposures to hazardous substances such as lead.  Now children’s unique vulnerabilities are considered in all of EPA’s regulatory actions.  Through collaborations with the larger children’s health community, EPA is working to ensure that all children can live, work and play in safe and healthy environments where they can develop to their full potential.
